British comedian Rowan Atkinson says he laughs out loud on an average of once every five years.

Atkinson, who is popular for playing the Mr. Bean character, also revealed that he feels no satisfaction when he hears the audience laugh at his jokes, reports

He said: "Some actors get an incredible high from hearing laughter, but I don't. Sadly, I never feel any great adrenaline rush. I never get elated by it, I never feel any euphoria.

"All I get is relief. That it worked, and that it has gone down well and the job is being done. So I feel satisfaction rather than elation.

"I don't laugh very much at all. I smile and I am enjoying myself but I don't laugh out loud, hardly ever - maybe once every five years."
